Tracy Chapman had n’t performed on American TV for five years. To return to do so, he chose the eve of the American elections. It happened last night at Late Night with Seth Meyers , where he sang one of his most famous pieces, Talkin ” bout a Revolution , from his 1988 debut album, to which he added a final part in which he briefly intones the phrase. “Go vote”.

Folksinger performed in front of a dark marquee. When he left the station in front of the microphone, the word “Vote” appeared behind him. Before the performance, Chapman issued a statement in which, like many others, he calls today’s presidential elections “the already important election of our lives” and says that it is “imperative that everyone vote to restore democracy.”

Tracy Chapman’s last television appearance dates back to 2015, on the Late Show with David Letterman . In recent years he has spaced out appearances and his latest unreleased album is Our Bright Future from 2008. Five years ago a Greatest Hits was released containing Letterman’s version of Stand by Me .
